E2 Laboratory 05
In this lab you will learn a few new Arduino functions, and then do a project of your own choosing. This lab is to be done individually, though you should feel free
to consult with others and with the wizards while you are working. Each person should create a
design. You can find the SolidWorks program on computers in Hicks 212.
- Familiarize yourself with SolidWorks by going through the tutorial from "Introduction to Solid
Modeling Using SolidWorks 2015," by Howard and Musto. There should
be hard copies in the the lab, or you can get a pdf version online.
If you don't finish the lab today, copies of the tutorial will be in Hicks
212 (the computer lab). You may skip the
tutorial if you already know SolidWorks.
- Create a design using SolidWorks to demonstrate that you you can
use the program. The design need not be elaborate, but must meet the following requirements:
Save your Solidwork design file (a file with extension ".SLDPRT")
somewhere you can access it later. Email it to yourself.
Turn in your ".SLDPRT" file on moodle.
- This is important! The design must fit within a
2.25"x2.25"x1"" inch space (1" is the height) When you create the new design, remember to
units to inches (as in the tutorial). This is important!
- The resolution available is about 0.01". If you try to
make finer details (i.e., small text) they won't appear.
A simple example (the yin-yang symbol I passed around in class), is shown below.
The images below show some examples made by other classes.
